IHS Leadership Team
Jennifer grew up in a small village in the Adirondack Mountains. While the Adirondacks does not particularly serve as a suitable habitat for dolphins, Jennifer decided that she wanted to train dolphins for a living and went off to university to do just that. By happenstance Jennifer took the courses “Animal Behavior” and “Applied Behavior Analysis” concurrently and discovered that you could train dolphins to work with autistic children and the outcomes were pretty remarkable. Jennifer ultimately decided to pursue her graduate studies in psychology and has worked with diverse populations utilizing various modalities, but her strength remains her behavioral therapeutic techniques. Jennifer is a cheerleader for all, and is grateful for the opportunity to serve as IHS’s executive director where she is able to lead an exceptional team and cheer for the clients’ resilience and recovery.
